Having problems with your Kirby Ultimate G Bagged Upright Vacuum ?

Shampooer not delivering suds properly, and its not the suds screen....

\015 Hello, my kirby shampooer used to work fine, now it does not. i too have had the problem of the suds screen coming loose and lodging in the hose. i took care of that with some glue. for a while, it worked OK. Now when i start to shampoo, for the first few minutes, it works fine and suds are the full width of the tray. after that, it goes into a little line about 4 inches wide unless i pull back super slowly. even then sometimes it will put out very little suds or none at all. what else can cause that? the switch fully opens in the ON position, the sud screen is present and not clogged, the hose is not clogged, everything is clean and assembled properly, and i use the correct amount of kirby shampoo. any help would be greatly appreciated. thanks!\015

I have had this issue numerous times. My husband fnally came up with the perfect solution. He wrapped teflon tape (PTFE tape) around the dumb screen and voila. No more screen coming loose. Mine has always been VERY loose. Infact it would simply fall down within minutes of it being inserted, before even turning on the device. poor workmanship, but niw it works great.
Instead of glue I used a rubber band to help provide an air free grip to keep it in place. Just a thin tiny rubber band around the cap then insert and it should stay snug. Mine hasn't fallen out since but if I ever needed to clean it or clear debrie I could take it out still.

My Kirby shampooer - G4 - hardly used any water from the tank and no suds at all. Pet hair did blow out of the small slotted holes in the tray as I moved the shampooer back and forth, but the carpet was basically dry. I did vacuum before shampooing, so the brush part seemed to work great during shampooing, but no water! The small screen was stuck in the crook of the hose that attached to the tank so I did get that out and put it on the small hole on the tank, but it didn't make any difference. I

Shampoo-er This seems to be a common problem, the shampooer is putting out alot of water and hardly any suds. I read through the posts about the little filter that sometimes gets out of place and I think I found it in the box - is it about 1" diameter hard plastic ring around very fine mesh? If so where exactly does it go? Some posts say in the hose, and others say in the opening of the tank. Or does it go in the place where the hose attaches to the tray? I also found a round sponge in the box o

I have a Bissell Powersteamer Pro Deluxe, Model 8804 shampooer. I got this bright idea to take the brush off as it was full of hair and debree. Upon putting it back on it appears I'm not getting the brush on properly. Does the belt go around the end with the grooves? Also do the grooves go on the right or left side? From my view point I am looking at the machine with it lying on it's back and I am sitting on the floor looking at the bottom of machine. Sure hope I haven't confused you too m

Have Hoover F7452900 spin vac carpet shampooer and brushes won't spin. The screen by the brushes is clean and they are place in position to clean on carpet. I noticed that when I have the brushes out of the machine and turn it on that the white square that is on the base of the machine does not spin--this is where part of the brush connector fastens to make bristles spin.
